|NASA CONNECT: Patterns, Functions, and Algebra: Wired for Space - NASA; Langley Research Center|
In Patterns, Functions and Algebra: Wired for Space, students will learn how patterns, functions and algebra can help NASA engineers design new ways of propelling spacecraft and how electricity and magnetism are being used to replace the fuel-consuming rocket propulsion commonly used to deliver a push to spacecraft. Students will discover three projects that use electromagnetism in a dynamic way: the Magnetic Levitation Launch System (MagLev), the Propulsive Small Expendable Deployer System (Pro...
